I'm not sure how much torque you think you need but w/ two working together at 6V It's a good bit?
here's one of the Hitec servos I'm using a great deal.

And a Futaba servo

There's a bunch, look at sail plane servos there small but very strong, slimline there's a brand that sell mostly those but I can't think of it now there very pricey though.

Now I get you! What I looked up was no where near the torques of these babies and cheap to boot!
I'm using mostly Futaba's and some HiTec's with 124 oz/87oz/57oz depending on my intended applications. Flaps/Rudder and Elevator with the higher torques and Ailerons and throttles with the lower torques. I do have some HS-81's that I may substitute for the ailerons, thanks to your suggestion of using two for each.
What do you plan to use to synchronize your servos?

When I did the ELV w/ the rotary drives they worked fine w/ out any synchronizing at all; BUT SOMETHING YOU MAY WANT TO THINK ABOUT I'M using two RX's one on each side this saves on wiring / weight & headaches figuring out all those wires; and it's not slower and both move at the same time.
